A Man and his Tools

Everyone knows that dcp_5019a "real Man" likes his tools :) One of the things I would bet any guy can show you is his favourite knife. This is mine, it goes in my pocket whenever I head for the garden, the workshop or just messing around outside. This one was given to me in the early 1970's and if the Ol' guy (mechanic that was working on the old diesel engine in our old boat) that gave it to me can be believed, its now fast approaching 100 years old. The dcp_5021 small blade is almost non existent from sharpening, its a little bit loose now, and the aluminium pieces have been reattached at least a dozen times over the years, but it's still the first tool I pick up. :)

cheers
